This Thanksgiving, we’re teaming up with Aaron Rodgers and the NFL to deliver meals to those that need it across the country.
Food insecurity is a loss of access to affordable and nutritious food and this complex problem has worsened for many communities amidst COVID-19, impacting one in six people according to Feeding America.
Through Postmates FoodFight!, we are working with shelters and organizations in need of donations across all 30 cities the 32 NFL teams call home.
On Monday, November 23rd, Aaron Rodgers made a Postmates delivery to the deserving staff and patients at the HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital in Green Bay. The children in the hospital as well as the staff were treated to gifts from Rodgers and Postmates delivered a variety of meals from Nectar.
In addition to the delivery at HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital, Rodgers also made a donation to Paul’s Pantry to go towards their Thanksgiving meal distribution for 1,400+ families.
On Tuesday, November 24 th, Postmates is partnering with the Jerry Rice Foundation, La Cocina, and the Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) to provide funding and deliver Thanksgiving week meals prepared by La Cocina entrepreneurs to food insecure residents of TNDC buildings. Jerry Rice is also donating GOAT Fuel to be served along with the meals.
With the help of Aaron Rodgers, Jerry Rice, and the NFL, we’re combating food insecurity throughout the holidays and beyond.
